July 2010. From bottle. An unusual IPA, but I really liked this one. Very unique and the cask ageing did not overwhelm at all.

Chuckaduck (659) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Best by 2/2/10. Consumed 5/10/13. 3 years late. Pours a clear orange with a thin, bubbly white head. Aroma is sensory overload; sweet, sour, smokey, vinous, citrus, peat, whiskey, apples, grapes. Odd and interesting. Taste is lots of smoke (real smoke; like camp fire smoke), fruity white wine notes, apples, whiskey; bitter citrus finish that turns all smoke. This is charcoal. Highly aggressive flavor profile. Some nice lacing. Mouth feel is slick, wet. Low carbonation. Really interesting. The smoke dominates. It is the only star here with a few subtle hints of fruit to support. The alcohol is surprisingly well-hidden. Thereís a lot of smoke flavor; not a lot of alcohol burn though. I actually really like this. Though I am getting it very late in itís life.

A still beverage. Orangey brown opaque hue similar to cider. Smells of leather, sausage, and smoke. Tastes of astringent char and is remeniscent of smoked gouda perhaps due to yeast . Palate is too bit to drying/bitter. Would drink again with cheese or meat.

Cider-colored pour. Aroma is smokey-applish. Odd. Flavor is burnt smoky, ciderish. Strong whiskey, and bitter fruit. Kinda bad tasting. Really thin.

DiarmaidBHK (3467) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle. They most have lost a bet when they bottleted this one. Pours the color and visage of Metamucil. Big malt and especially Pete on this one. Itís like someone defecated and then wrapped the shit in bacon. Flat, no head. Tastes lime skunky scotch. Lingers. What the fuck?!?

Scopey (7176) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle thanks to the ever generous madmitch76. Best before 18/12/09....... It pours hazy golden orange, with a thin bubbly white head. The nose is dominated by islay whisky character, deeply smokey, hay, TCP , permanent marker and peat. The taste is initially sweet orange, peach and marmalade, then the whisky sets in: smoke, peat, hay and floral notes, with a bitter finish. Medium body and low carbonation. This tastes a lot smoother than it did when I had it fresh. Considering how old this is itís actually pretty alright.

The time spent in the scotch casks can clearly be tasted and while I find it great in concept, I found it lacking in the final product. -still worth trying but not necessarily worth repeating.

Pale golden color, no head as this is a still beverage. Definitely taste the scotch but perhaps almost too much. It tastes like a watered down islay scotch.

Wasnít exactly what I expected. Donít care for the flavor of this one but to each their own. Do not like the smokiness background of it. Had much better from brew dog.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Best before 2/2/10 Pours a lightly cloudy weird brownish color. Aroma is watered down whisky. Taste is whisky. Like watered down Johnnie Walker Green. Light bodied with a thin watery texture. Zero carbonation and a long finish. Overall, wow. This is not beer at all, but watery whisky. Not sure what to think about it other than Iím pretty sure I like it.
